Real Estate and Construction Law

The provision of legal advice on real estate and construction law is a further area of practice within our firm. We supervise German and international project developers, construction companies and investors, as well as closed property funds.

A key focus of our activities in this area is the design and negotiation of commercial leases and the valuation and administration of real estate (asset, center and property management contracts).

Furthermore, we advise principals and agents on the negotiation, drafting and design of construction contracts; capital investment projects; the defense of remuneration claims and their implementation; post-contractual claims for payment; claims arising from interrupted construction contracts and defects liability claims. For this purpose, we offer legal representation and assistance during litigation before courts and arbitral tribunals.

For our clients in the finance sector, we set up the legal framework for funding and for individual financing models. ROTTHEGE I WASSERMANN is the trusted legal advisor of more than 100 closed-ended real estate funds with an overall investment volume of 2 billion Euros and retail spaces of over 1 million square meters.

ROTTHEGE I WASSERMANN consults German and international project developers, construction companies, investors and closed real estate funds.
